VIDEO: Extra Curriculars Still Top of Mind at Queen's Park
As the heads of the province's elementary teachers' union meet over the next couple of days to decide what they'll do about extra curricular activities, the Tories are on the attack.
The Progressive Conservatives maintain with Kathleen Wynne in change, the unions have the keys to the Premier's office.
Leader Tim Hudak says a Tory government would be heavy fisted with teachers and other public sector employees.
Wynne, however, maintains the education system in the province has no better friend than the provincial government.
The Premier and Education Minister Liz Sandals met with student leaders at Queen's Park Wednesday, to discuss how after-school programs were being rolled out in their high schools.
The Ontario Secondary School Teacher's Federation (OSSTF) announce last week they would urge their union members to go back to volunteering for extra curriculars.
It was one of the things both the OSSTF and Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (ETFO) held back in protest of legislated teachers contracts.
ETFO gave themselves a deadline of Friday to make a decision.
